HiVe has become HBV
February 7, 2014

Buskerud and Vestfold University College was founded 1 January 2014, through the merger of Vestfold University College and Buskerud University College. It will have a staff of 800 and more than 9000 students. Alle four existing campuses will be continued and will all share in future growth in student numbers.

HBV will offer distinct, research based academic programmes within:

  • Health sciences and optometry
  • Technology and maritime management
  • Education
  • Humanities and social sciences
  • Business and management

The department structure at HBV will remain the same, and the merger will have no direct impact on NorFab and the infrastructure involved in the collaboration.
